TULSA, Okla. -- Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc. announced that Executive Vice President Yves Boyer has shifted responsibilities, from heading up the company's Canadian operations to leadership of its international division.
Boyer replaces Peter Guptill, who retired after more than 10 years of service at Dollar Thrifty. Boyer has been with the company since 1996, and will report to Scott Anderson, senior executive vice president for global marketing and franchise operations. The Canadian management team will now report directly to Jay Foley, senior executive vice president for corporate operations.
"We are extremely pleased that Yves will be leading our international operation," said Gary L. Paxton, president and chief executive officer. "Yves' extensive experience and expertise make him the perfect person to continue growing both of our car rental brands on a global scale."
Boyer has more than 25 years of experience in the automotive industry. Before joining DTG, he served as executive vice president and general manager of Nissan Canada Inc.
Foley will oversee the company's Canadian operations. He is also responsible for all of Dollar Thrifty's U.S. corporate locations.
"We have a very strong management team in Canada, and I am confident they will not miss a beat in guiding our growth and progress as we continue to move forward," Paxton said. "Jay will be focused on exploring opportunities for both growth and for achieving operational efficiencies that may be available by leveraging off our U.S. operations."
